Main Recipe Ingredients:

  • 500 g Chopped Rabbit
  • 200 ml Red Wine
  • 6 Medium Parsnips
  • 6 Medium Tomatoes
  • 1 Large Zucchini/Courgette
  • 1 Large Sweet Potato
  • 1 Tbsp Oregano
  • 1 Tbsp Thyme
  • 1 Tbsp Garlic Puree
  • Salt & Pepper

After Cooking:


  • Dice the tomatoes and remove the cores. Slice the courgette into chunks. Peel and dice your parsnips and sweet potato.
  • Load the tomatoes, courgette, parsnips and sweet potato into the slow cooker.
  • Add in the seasonings, red wine and garlic puree.
  • Mix with your hands.
  • Add the rabbit on top and season well with salt and pepper.
  • Cook in the slow cooker for 3.5 hours on high.
  • Once it is done remove the rabbit and put the rabbit to one side.
  • Add to the slow cooker tinned tomatoes, a little cream and paprika. Using a blender, blend until smooth.
  • Serve with the rabbit over the ragu sauce.


Remember rabbit bones are small. Be careful when feeding smaller children. I would recommend not to serve it to under 4s.
The rabbit we cooked was 500g and was chopped into pieces in a similar way to when you buy chicken fricassee.
If you prefer a chunky ragu you can skip the use of the blender.
The ragu tastes amazing because the juices of the rabbit drips down and you don’t need a separate stock for this slow cooker rabbit ragu.
